on in the middle east. this situation is heating up increasingly between israel and the leadership in gaza. what's your sense of how this affects what president obama has to do? >> it's not really a war. israel will win if there is a lopsided war. you have a powerful machine in the middle east and then you have gaza that has a few rockets. that's a tactical move that the israelis have undertaken. understandable because of the rocket fire they faced. but what is the long term strategy? what are they going to do about gaza? they tried to economically choke it off, it didn't work. they tried this military operation before including a ground invasion. didn't really work. where are they going here? and that's where the united states can be helpful. >> fareed zakaria, always a pleasure seeing you. one of the richest men in the world says i may have to go dress shopping in a few years. maybe help help me get something nice. warren buffett is on the show next. ♪ announcing the all-new 2013 malibu from chevrolet. ♪ with a remarkable new interior featuring the available chevrolet mylink infotainment s

election. he basically said romney is a better friend of israel, please vote for him. not in so many words but if he were jewish and in florida, you got the message. if he saw the clip on youtube of him offered the congratulating the american ambassador to israel over the election, he knows that might have been a mistake at this point and it is hurting him in israel. it would be interesting to see what it does to israeli american relations. i still believe the republican party has document up its faith on the tooth fairy. at the table still believe tax cut increase revenue -- i think they will still believe that tax cuts increase revenue. i do believe there will be some bipartisanship, and better bipartisan mood despite the lingering effects will nonsense. >> very good overview. ok. dr. chavis, still free to wander as dr. jeremy mayor did. >> my comments were set up to observe the election in which i think has been quite historic. and we will be talking about it for years and trying to figure it out. one a fragile coalition of women, african-american, latino, the young, and other minoritie

in the " the new york times"about the back and forth between israel and hamas. in "the washington post." good morning from washington, d.c. on the democrats in line. i voted -- will survive before the bush cuts which were temporary. perhaps this should only be extended 50% instead of 100%. i think the republicans won the house. they both want something. i think they both need to work together and the constituents of both should pay a little more. that is how i feel. host: do you think yesterday both sides expressed a willingness on both parts? caller: i hope they realize the important thing is solving the crisis, not taking care of their particular constituents a lawn. host: let's hear from one more call. this is herman on the republican line. caller: yes, i want to say just because you are on a runaway train for the last 40 years -- we went through a great depression and came through it just fine. republicans and democrats both do not have the ability to solve this problem we are in. they are smart people, do not get me wrong. we need to go over the fiscal cliff for the good of the country.
